    What Is Beauty?

    So around these parts, all i've been seeing are threads about this religion vs that religion, or this political stance vs that political stance.

    Vostok

    I didn't see a thread like this, so I may as well set up a little thread. The media hasn't really been covering this at all. Frankly, i'm suprised. A lake untouched by light or human hands for over 15-25 MILLION YEARS. Isn't that just fascinating? And now, thanks to wikipedia, a little...

    What Side Do You Sleep On?

    Simple question. Simple answer. I usually sleep on my right side, as I find it most comfortable and I can see all of the room from that position. If I sleep on my left, i'll get self concious of what's going on behind me, or if something is there. I'm rather childish like that. o_o...

    Bert and Ernie

    Do these two look familiar? To most of you, yes. These two are Bert and Ernie, two of my favorite characters from the classic TV show Sesame Street. In recent times, some contraversy has arisen considering these two, and I believe it to be unneccessary. Why all the fuss? Well, in New York...
